Pretty in Purple

This is a card I made for my LSS, Simply Scrapbooks.  The stamps I used are Lady Tilda and Wedding Rose Arch, both by Magnolia.  I watercolored my image using Distress Inks and used some of my favorite Basic Grey paper.  It's a large image so it didn't leave much room for other embellishments.  I added a piece of ribbon and some pretty pearls.  I also added some glitter to her dress and the flowers on the wedding arch.  Thanks for stopping by!

This card is so pretty Anita and as always your colouring divine :-D I had a quick bash at using my distress inks the other day but have decided it's something that demands my undivided attention and time so will wait until both are available lol. xx
